Residential with social distancing and on-line

Kilcuan Retreat Centre, in Clarinbridge, is a modern and very spacious facility, set alone in woodland. By limiting attendance to one person in each double or triple en-suite room and keeping to a very strict COVID protocol we can run residential retreats there which are safe. Residential numbers are limited to 16, including the resident teacher(s) and cook. We can also take 10 people attending on-line who are treated the same as residents, using two screens so they can be seen and heard by everyone else in discussions, and providing them with the same teacher interviews.

Because numbers are limited, we will be increasing the number of 10 day retreats this year. Dates are below. These dates are flexible to fit with any future government restrictions. Anyone booked on a canceled retreat, or one which moves to a date which does not suit them, will be offered a place on a future retreat.

These retreats count as residential educational courses with appropriate social distancing and as such have been allowed under all Irish government restrictions imposed so far, except level 5, including being an acceptable reason for inter-county travel.

We will not be accepting residential bookings from anyone outside the island of Ireland and as part of the COVID protocol you will be expected to limit your contacts for the week prior to attending.  Our 10 day retreats work well on-line for anyone living in a house or flat alone, particularly if they have done a long silent retreat before. We are regularly told that they prove more rewarding. If you are able to, then please do the retreat on-line so that those with unsuitable home situations can have the places at Kilcuan.
